Programs for Youth (ages 13-18)
As Unitarian Universalists, our call to the work of youth ministry rests on our spiritual commitment to build the world we dream about — a world in which our faith communities welcome people of all ages, cultures, and backgrounds to join hands in nourishing our spirits and healing the world.
— The Youth Ministry Working Group Report, 2009.
Youth at the Calgary Unitarians meet during the service, in a space that has been decorated by the youth, for the youth. It’s a place where open discussion happens in a safe environment. We talk about our faith. We talk about other faiths. We do fun activities. We talk service. We talk acceptance and openness. All with respect and a shared sense of learning about each other and our world. For many youth it’s a valued time to decompress from their week and find comfort in shared experiences and community.
The youth also attend the service upstairs in Wickenden on a periodic/monthly basis, based on class votes for services of interest. These dates are posted on the Room 8 door.
Youth Classes: September to May, 10:30am to 11:30am, downstairs in Room 8. There are no classes July/August, youth are welcome to attend the summer services in Panabaker during this time.
